Pink Floyd wins in court

Posted by madhack on Mar 11, 2010

The band has won their court fight over digital downloads, with the UK's High Court agreeing that their 1999 record deal's requirement that tracks not be split from their albums for sale applies to digital downloads. EMI has been ordered to pay £40,000 in court costs. In addition, EMI will be on the hook for an undisclosed amount of royalties.

Not clear is what this actually means for single-track digital downloads of Floyd songs, with Reuters claiming that their sales have been ordered to stop and BBC claiming the opposite.
